With the upcoming Samhain 2007 Spider-and-web-themed issue, I've been seeing inspiration in everything, and figuring out exactly how far I can stretch the constraints of the theme to do projects that will interest not only you, the readers, but me as well.
I've been toying with the idea of doing some weaving, stretching the spider theme back to the Arachne myth, and seeing where that takes me. I don't have a standard loom, of course, because what loom could survive a more-than-slightly exuberant 4.5 year old kid? Not many. I have an inkle loom, but can't think of much to do with that right now.
I picked up a book on off-loom weaving, so perhaps I'll find some inspiration there.
We still have some room in the Spider issue to fill up, so please feel free to submit. If you are unsure about whether your idea would work, you can write up a description, show us some swatches (if applicable to the craft) and talk to us about it via our submit email (which you can find at the above link as well as other submission guidelines.) We'd love to know where your brains are taking this idea.
Off to dig through my supplies, read a bit about weaving, and see how I can rock my own world with my dazzling, daring, and (dare I say it) slightly sinister creativity.
